I enjoy looking at the work that others do. When I have the time (which I need to make more of) I like to go to 500px, or flickr, or tookapic and see what other people are doing.
Sometimes I find inspiration (gee, I want to do that). Sometimes I find frustration (%$!#^$, how did they do that).
Sometimes I find myself asking why (why did they make this picture).
I've mentioned before that I mostly take pictures for myself. Mostly...
I do take pictures for others, mostly shared over social media, mostly targeted at people already familiar with the work I do. I'll be honest, someone of them pretty scary.
These aren't the photos I'm taking to be printed and displayed, or to be part of some personal ego collection. These are the pictures that are taken because the audience will enjoy them.
... at least that's what I tell myself.
